TOTAL GS PVV 142 Certified Seals

TOTAL General Specification GS PVV 142 Appendix 8 is unique to TOTAL, a French multinational integrated oil and gas company and one of the seven "Supermajor" oil companies in the world.  The specification sets out the "Elastomer O-ring seals explosive decompression testing procedure".

Known to be one of the most aggressive test regimes for explosive decompression (ED), the TOTAL General Specification requires performance levels beyond common ED rated materials. ED resistance is a vital material property for elastomer seals used in valves, surface and subsea oilfield equipment.  High performance valve seals certified to TOTAL General Specification deliver safety and reliability, in extreme conditions over prolonged periods of time, in the oil and gas industry.
